What's the story of Drag Addict?

It’s summer in Manchester. It’s raining (obviously) and on Canal Street storm clouds of another sort are gathering. Club Fierce is under threat. But Dolly Ravage, who runs the club and is the unofficial godmother of the Gay Village, isn’t going down without a fight. 

Dolly has a plan to to save it from property developers by recruiting six amazing queens to slay the 
runway and reinvent Club Fierce as the all-new House of Ferocity. 

But will the arrival of the mysterious Bobby Carter from America – hiding a secret that could change everything – derail her battle to save the soul of the Manchester scene?

News about Drag Addict

New Arlene Phillips show Drag Addict postponed
A new musical choreographed by Dame Arlene Phillips (Guys & Dolls, Grease), has been postponed. It was originally set to have its world premiere at Manchester's HOME theatre from 18 July to 13 August, but has been delayed in development and there are no future dates set for performances. The show is written by novelist Matt Cain (Becoming Ted), with music by David Andrew Wilson, Head of Music at Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Really Useful Group. The concept of the show was originally developed by Arlene Phillips, who was tapped to choreograph the musical, and it was to be directed by Jonathan O'Boyle (Top Hat). A statement on the HOME website says that, "Unfortunately, we’ve had to postpone our splendifferent new musical Drag Addict. New musicals take a long time to develop for the stage, and a few weeks ago we have realised that we’re not going to be ready to bring ‘Drag Addict’ to the stage this summer. Everyone at HOME, all of our co-producers and the show’s creative team remain incredibly passionate about the show and we hope to be able to share this brilliant new musical with audiences in the future." Drag Addict follows Dolly Ravage, who is battling to save Manchester's Club Fierce in the Gay Village from property developers, and who isn't going down without a fight! Arlene Phillips has two productions running in the West End at the moment: Nicholas Hytner's immersive production of Guys & Dolls at the Bridge Theatre; and the Leicester Curve production of Grease at the Dominion Theatre starring Louise Redknapp. The show is produced by JAS Theatricals, Aria Entertainment and Home.
